If your site is already included and you use robots.txt, it will take a while before it is removed. You will have to wait until the spider it again, which may take 1-4 weeks or more. However, you can also use a javascript to detect the referal and then redirect the visitors somewhere else, but that doesn't solve the problem I guess.
